Organizers of FIREFEST 2023 are inviting resident runners to join them on a five-kilometre (5K) route along Riverside Drive on Saturday September 9, 2023.

Nearly five hundred individual runners and walkers of all ages are expected to take part in this unique first responderโ€”themed charity run celebrating all frontline service providers.

Race-day registration begins at 7:30 a.m. with the run to start at 9 a.m. sharp. All runners in the 5K will receive a high-quality event t-shirt and finisherโ€™s medal. Entry fees are $50 for the 5K run and $20 for a one-kilometre (1K) run or Kids Dash.

Funds raised will support ongoing mental health education, training and awareness as part of the Sole Focus Project of the Canadian Mental Health Association. Many sessions are geared toward helping professionals like first responders, medical professionals, youth and caregivers.
